Assassin loving the ocean

Assassin moth testing is going great with the boat starting to be pushed hard. No major problems just a few little niggles which are being tweaked. The gearing adjustment screw bent in 20-25kts of wind. Had a good days sailing on the sea yesterday. Drifted around in the morning in about 4-5kts and then had a blast in the afternoon when a front came over with 20-25kts. The Assassin handled the wind range nicely. The boat sets up well with slight weather helm without extreme mast rake. Height doesn't appear to be an issue. Didn't get any pictures out on the sea as we didn't have the chase boat there, so you will have to make do with more lake photos for now.

Even easy for old guys to do foiling gybes...
